These are great core exercises. The ball adds just enough instability to trigger your body to use all of the spinal, shoulder girdle and pelvic stabilizers to maintain balance. Doing each exercise slowly while paying attention to the breath can build core quickly and efficiently. Good job on this choice of core workout! What does it matter if it says how many to do? Do what you can and build up as you go!
You are able to print them out. Just click on the icon that looks like a disc/printer.
I agree with Virginia# 2630. If I could print them out I would certainly have them handy to do with my other exercises for my core and back. Thanks for your very best info! ever!Rose
I completely agree with virginia....its too much to have to print or go thru the slides page by page when working out!
I really dislike the slideshow format. Would much rather prefer seeing the exercises on one page, that I could then print out and do. The slides are too time-consuming and then difficult to reproduce for use at home.
good suggestions but the article didn't tell the reader how many reps to compele for each exercise.
I liked all of the moves for situps and will try to incorporate them into my workout. That will be the true test, is after I have tried them do they really help in your run by making you stronger!!
